CRAWFORD COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT) – Indiana Conservation Officers rescued a teenager who fell from a cliff in Hoosier National Forest in Crawford County.
At around 11:30 Monday night, two officers responded to a missing juvenile who had not been seen for about four hours.
They determined the teen had left the area on his ATV and possibly traveled to the forest to explore caves.
Tuesday morning, responders formed a search team and while searching one of the conservation officers heard the teen.
He had fallen 50 to 60 feet (ca. 18 m) from the cliffs.
The boy was flown to the University of Louisville Hospital for head, lower back and leg injuries.
